MARK TODD CLAUSEN [#196721], 42, of Santa Rosa was suspended for two years, stayed, and placed on two years of probation with a 30-day actual suspension. The order took effect May 14, 2011.Clausen stipulated that he committed professional misconduct by practicing law while suspended. The underlying discipline, imposed in 2008, also resulted from practicing while suspended. Because he did not pay the costs of the proceedings, the suspension exceeded 30 days.Clausen stipulated that he signed and submitted letters and pleadings to the court on behalf of clients on seven occasions. He said he was unaware he was suspended after the 30 days and although he had adequate funds to pay the costs, he didn’t know about the deadline. Once he became aware of the suspension, he did no further legal work.In mitigation, he cooperated with the bar’s investigation and demonstrated remorse.
